    I've watched this one three times now, and I am still confounded. I just do not see how that could have been an accident in any way.

    Just watched the Bridgend documentary. How horribly sad the whole thing was. And that Justin Beecham who hung himself just three weeks after sitting next to his mom in that interview.... Depressing as hell, that was.

    Watching Dear Zachary now.

    Jesus. This Shirley woman is off her nut.

    Edited to add: Oh, God. I just hit a point of this documentary I didn't see coming and wish I could have missed entirely.

    We have a thread on that case here:

    Sadly we lost some good info in one of the forum crashes but there IS some good stuff still there.

    I wish I could unread everything I read about Bridgend. That's worse than The Bridge. I think I will pass on that. I can't take that type of human suffering. I must find kiddie videos, or something happy.

    Is anyone else in love with Louis Theroux and his documentaries? I wish he had his own channel, because I would watch every day lol. I saw an awesome one last night as part of his LA Stories series about people who were apparently terminally ill in California and their care/death choices.

    If anyone wants to watch it, here's a link

    Last Days Here

    Documentary follows Bobby Liebling, lead singer of seminal hard rock/heavy metal band Pentagram, as he battles decades of hard drug addiction and personal demons to try and get his life back.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1723126/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

    I just saw this last week and I thought it was really good but I'm also a Pentagram fan so take its worth. Its on Netflix for those of you that have an account. I was just about to order the dvd on Amazon when I remembered she had an account so I got hooked up for free.

    I've been watching the Final 24 on Netflix. It's the final 24 hours in a star's life.

    So far, I've watched Janis Joplin, JFK Jr, and Tupac. They've been interesting.

    My husband told me when he saw I was watching the Tupac one "do we really have to watch this shit" and I told him "why, everybody loves Tupac" and the smartASS tells me "Not the mf'er that killed him". Good point.

    This one also gets me.

    I'll have to look at my Netflix & HBO history to see the names of the ones I liked. I've been watching a lot of documentary flicks lately.

    I watched bridged tonight. Crazy shit. And Paris is burning, still not sure how I made it this long without watching that one.

    I also watched alive inside a few weeks back. It was good but depressing. The normal kin of thing I subject myself to.

    Thanks! I'm watching Final 24 hours right now. I'm starting with Marvin Gaye. What a tortured soul.

    I plan on watching that one next. I'll have to wait until my husband isn't here. He hates doc.

    I've learned some interesting stuff that I didn't know about. For example: Janis Joplin. I knew she died of a herion OD, but I didn't know her herion was considered pure at 50% because the dealer didn't dilute it down. I also didn't know that 9 other people died in the same area around that time due to undiluted herion.

    Also, after watching 2pac's- I really believe the dude that killed him was the dude he previously beat up in the lobby earlier that night.

    I watched The Pruitt-Igoe Myth on Netflix a couple of years ago (I didn't check to see if it's still there). It's about the rise and fall of a housing project in St. Louis, MI. If you're into urban sociology I think you'll enjoy it.

    Sadly, it's no longer available.


    I binge watched all of The Final 24. Very good show. A lot of stuff I didn't know. Now I'm watching Family Affair, it's about a boy who killed his sister.

    Yeah, I have watched There's Something Wrong with Aunt Diane twice. That story really gets to me. I don't understand how the family says that she didn't drink often but then she decides to drink and smoke weed while having a van full of children?? I've been crossfaded, and I would definitely crash a car if I chose to drive. Mixing weed and alcohol will fuck you right the fuck up. I do not understand what happened there at all.

    And Dear Zachary...I went into it saying I would not cry, and I did good until the end of the movie when the guy filming dedicated it to the guy's parents. I felt so sad for them.

    I downloaded The Bridge, but I can't find the Bridgend documentary anywhere to watch. I don't have a netflix account.

    ETA: Also, The Staircase was awesome. I still don't know if I think he did it or not.

    I watched the culture high last night. It was a good watch, its basically about the politics behind marijuana prohibition.

    Grass (1999) A stupid Canadian pot-doc putting blame on the usual suspects.

    Woodstock (1970) Needs no explanation.

    Refused are F**king Dead (2006) A bit pretentious, but these guys were awesome.

    Warrendale (1967) One word - Intense

    Why We Fight (2005) Everyone loves propaganda and the military-industrial complex. Right?

    Loved The Other F Word. Some other music docs that I love are The Gits, Joy Division and the one about The New York Dolls.

    Since 2007, dozens of young people have been found hanged in Bridgend, a town in southern Wales. Many of them knew one another-they were friends, neighbors, and family. The striking similarities between their deaths have confounded authorities and struck fear into the hearts of parents. Headlines splashed across the UK earned Bridgend its infamous nickname: "Death Town."

    I just watched this! So good.
